The Physiology of Taste, or Meditations on Transcendental Gastronomy
by Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Number of pages: 356
The book offers meditations not just on matters of cooking and eating, but extends to sleep, dreams, exhaustion, and even death. Brillat-Savarin, whose genius is in the examination and discussion of food, cooking, and eating, proclaims that the discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the discovery of a star.
